I was just testing cpan2dist. I was building packages to set up an apt repository for Moose and KiokuDB. Quite a few of the packages that were generated depend on cpan-libpathtools-perl. The version of pathtools that got installed was 3.30-1. All the packages that depended on cpan-libpathtools-perl were requiring a minimum version of cpan-libpathtools-perl 3.2501. Apt believed that 3.2501-1 was newer than 3.30-1. For my testing purposes I cheated and I changed the version of libpathtools to a number greater than 3.2501. After doing that I was able to index the repository and use apt to install all the packages. I imagine this bug is just caused by a discrepancy between the way CPAN and apt compare version numbers. My test virtual machine is running Ubuntu 9.04 with perl 5.10.0.
